“So what am I? Chopped liver?”

I haven’t heard this phrase in forever and I just heard it 5 minutes ago. Where does it come from? What’s wrong with chopped liver? Liver is fan-fucking-tastic! Chopped it’s phenomenal! I dip! A spread! Lovely!


Chopped liver was traditionally served as a side dish rather than a main course. The phrase, therefore may have originally meant to express a feeling of being overlooked, as a "side dish."

Huh. Well, then it’s a delicious side dish! Who would overlook this wonderful, iron enriching delight? No worries, chopped liver. I would never overlook you. I will always be excited to see you. You are my additional main dish.



*…not to be confused with the Klatchian crocodile god Offler
